Digital Art. The Stained Glass Effect.

작년

Flowers. The Stained Glass Look.

I have presented flowers in various ways in steemit via my photography and digital manipulation and after discovering 'The Stained Glass Effect,' I'd like to share this colourful variety with you. All of these images have been created by applying digital applications to my original photos.

Begonias:

Begonia is a genus of perennial flowering plants in the Begoniaceae family. They are just one of 1,795 species which thrive in sub-tropical and tropical climates. Charles Plumier, the French botanist, gave these plants their name. As much as these flowers love the warmer climates, not many will tolerate full sun. Most begonias are tender and will only survive mild winters. In cool climates, some are grown as summer annuals. Others as house plants and the tuberous species are removed and stored during the winter months.

They are easily propagated by stem cuttings or by dividing them from the roots. There are a wide variety of colours available and many cultivars can have multiple layers making them a very attractive option for gardens.

Gazanias:

Gazania Flowers are a genus of the Asteraceae family. There are many species which make it hard for them to be distinguished. Their daisy-like composite flower-heads are vibrant in colour ranging from white, cream yellow, red and brown. They are from South Africa but grow very well in Australia as they thrive in sunny areas. They are often planted as an effective ground cover and are tolerant to drought conditions.

Coneflowers:

Cone Flowers Echinacea Purpurea. Apart from their distinctive beauty and vibrant colours Cone flowers or Echinacea plants are well known for their healing properties. Echinacea is extracted from the flowers, leaves and root and it assists in restoring the immune system and fighting influenza. These long flowering perennials are native to the United States and is known there as Hedgehog Coneflower due to their brown prickly centres which are floral bracts.

They are part of the sunflower family and butterflies, hummingbirds, and bees are attracted to these blooms. They are grown for their ornamental value as well as their health value and over the years, many cultivars have been developed. Cone flowers are drought tolerant and grow equally well in dry or moist soils.

those images were very good, congratulations

·

Thank you kindly @pequef I'm glad you enjoyed viewing these images.

That is a really fun effect! That coneflower is particularly impressive! I like how you can see the original flower detail. Only with the enhancements of the stained glass version.

·

Thanks Melinda. They're a bit different aren't they?

Very beautiful! So pretty stained glass and flowers together!

Happy New Year 🎆 @trudeehunter!
·

Thanks very much @shasta I'm glad you like these images. HAPPY NEW YEAR to you also. I hope you have an awesome year my friend.

The next step is to actually recreate it in stained glass!

I had a friend that actually did that. Her work was great, but she went through multiple boxes of bandaids.

·

That would be fun @fotosdenada but I value my fingers too much (lol)

Really striking effects Trudee. I especially like the last image ~ Which made me wonder what a waratah would look like in 'stained glass.' ♥︎♥︎⚖️♥︎♥︎

·

Thank you @allyinspirit I'm sure a waratah would look lovely. I don't think I have any photos of waratahs.

I like the effect, 100% upvote, Happy New Year @trudeehunter

·

Thank you kindly Jerry. HAPPY NEW YEAR to to you also. I hope it will be a great one for you.

Thanks so much @vincy

Greetings @trudeehunter these photo manipulations are absolutely stunning. I've seen the stained glass effect before, and I've even tried to play around with it myself, but what I learned, is it isn't easy to create the desired effect, because these filters do some funny things some times!

You are quite talented, and I have a sneaking suspicion that you might have a secret or two in making these look so mesmerizing!

My Steem feed is looking amazing these days after discovering your talent! Great job! 😃

·

Greetings @futuremind Many thanks for your wonderful comments and support. Knowing that others appreciate my work and is very rewarding indeed. There's no real secret, but I do play around with them to improve contrast, colour and clarity because sometimes what is produced with the first edit is not satisfactory.

Howdy tonight trudeehunter! wow, these are all just magnificent! Do you choose the colors also or is it random? They're all fabulous!

·

Hi @janton I used the same digital effect on all of them but the colours were determined by their original colours in the photos. It was interesting to see how varied they looked by using the same filter. I'm happy you like them.

Haha.....I was only joking but now that you've given me permission, I'm not one to turn down such an intriguing challenge. I wonder if your avatar is big enough? I'll see what I can do.

I can't get it to download and I think it will be too small. I'm trying to work out the best way for you to send me a copy so that I can give you a stained glass makeover.
